Aliens everywhere can relax, as the chances of being randomly shot have just decreased immeasurably.
RIP Commander Koenig.
There were quite a few collectable figurines - Palitoy did the best
which was a bit better than the Mattel one
I think the Mattel one looks more like him, I remember him from Space 1999 which scared me as a kid.
I'm surprised his Space 1999 role isn't being highlighted in the obits more - for me that was his most memorable role.
And playing Salieri of course
Great actor. Ed Wood is one of my favourite films.
Anyone remember the toy Eagle spacecraft? They had a detachable payload underneath, 4 x yellow barrels with the radioactive symbol in them.
I remember the national news when some bloke stumbled across a set. The police were out, EOD, HazMat, all sorts, before they finally twigged it was a toy. The radioactive symbol was removed from models made after than.
Two, Eagle Shuttle & Eagle Transporter.
I've still got my Eagle's showing pride and place in the glass cabinet. Rip Martin.
A sad loss
Another Space 1999 fan here. Sad to hear. 89 ain't bad.
I should add that I bought the box set of Space 1999 yesterday while in the smoke (went to the V&A Floyd exhibit). And being away from the news for two days, I did wonder if anyone famous might have died....
The old Mission Impossible TV series has wobbly special effects compared to the Tom Cruise franchise but was psychologically far more sophisticated. You can see Martin Landau use NLP style language and sudden shifts in mood to manipulate his mark.
Last of the Psychons should be safe though
One does wonder whether the special effects were "forgiven" because of the quality of the acting
Catherine Schell ( Mia). Wow. Now she was a looker in Space 1999..
